Blood Cell Storage, Inc. (BCSI) is an international medical device company based in Seattle, Washington, with European operations located in The Netherlands.
BCSI has created two unique product lines that benefit patients, clinicians, researchers, pathologists and doctors using patented technologies. Our fluorescent dyes, micro-fluidics, Nucleic Acid Extraction capabilities and automated systems reduce healthcare costs while improving patient outcomes.
The SAFE (Sterile, Automated Fluoroscopic Evaluation) Family of products are based upon patented, optical fluorescent technology. The measurement devices are used in combination with a disposable sensor, to accurately and reliably measure the pH of fluids such as platelets, the media used in IVF and other culture media. The sensor contains a proprietary fluorescent dye that is pH sensitive. Sensors are supplied with an ID code is used to tell SAFE reader devices how to specifically interpret the fluorescent measurement, thus acting as a quality standard ensuring reliable measurements time after time.
The Simple Nucleic Acid Processing (SNAP) family of products is built around our proprietary flat glass extraction technology. Capable of quickly, easily, and reliably isolating nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from blood and a variety of other biological specimens, SNAP can help improve extraction in your lab. SNAP is used where scarce or sparse samples of genetic material are either hard to store or hard to transport. SNAP has been shown to be more effective than competitive methods in fetal DNA, environmental specimen analysis and reductions where toxin elimination (phenol) are vital.more
